nbn has recently appointed a new Chief Network Engineering Officer, effective December 2015.
Peter Ryan has been appointed to the executive committee as the Chief Network Engineering Officer and will report to the CEO.
Mr Ryan joined nbn in early 2013 and has been acting in the role since 14 October 2015.
nbn CEO, Bill Morrow, said, “Peter is a global veteran of the telco industry and has built a sound knowledge of the business in his previous role of Executive General Manager, Regional Deployment.
“His expertise is complemented by his strong relationships with the team, both in-house and in our extended team within the delivery partner network. He brings fresh eyes to the role to pair with his experience in the network build.”
Mr Morrow said, “I welcome Peter to the role and look forward to working with him in what will without doubt be some of nbn’s most exciting years.
“Peter will play a key role on a very capable executive team driving exponential network growth and integration across the multi-technology mix. This is one of the largest infrastructure projects ever seen in Australia and quite possibly, the world.
“Peter will continue to drive engineering, design and network deployment activities leveraging the strong industry partnerships nbn has recently negotiated,” Mr Morrow said.
